take off


I decided to make all my Christmas presents this year until I realized that it was going to be hard for me to make something for my almost 6 and almost 4 year old nephews that they would actually like.
For example, no matter how nice a pair of mittens I knit them, they aren't going to care.

So, inspired by Courtney's post about paper airplanes, I am thinking about getting them this Electric Plane Launcher kit. Using gears and motors kids can assemble something that can make paper airplanes fly at 30 miles per hour.

Maybe I should get them a paper airplane book while I'm at it. Then we can make some paper airplanes together!

What's not to like about that?

Thank you for commenting on my blog. I think that finishing knitting projects is the worse thing to do and I have a few left to finish also.

Oh my gosh, they will love this! I would love it and I don't even know how to make a paper plane.

Oh I love it!! I think that seems like a most perfect present (as well as the paper airplane book!)

Oh I would love this take off launcher and this book. I am obsessed about paper planes and I am still struggling to design my own plane that would always fly! Maybe I am crazy but that's one of my passions...
